Question about Refrigerators
I have a Jenn-Air side-by-side. My date of purchase was Aug. 2004. Since yesterday the fridge side door isn't staying closed after closing. I have to return to the door and push firmly...but I've never had to do this before. The Jenn-Air site mentions I might be having trouble with the door's closer but then doesn't outline what that is, just advises contacting a repair professional. Can you tell me? Can I fix this myself?
PJ, as long as you don't have any shelves preventing the door from closing, it probably is the cam that sits on the bottom of the refrigerator door. In order to change it out you will have to remove the entire refer side door. Lay it down and replace the cams on the bottom. I don't have a model number here so I can't give you a part number. You will have to remove the top hinge and the door will lift up and off. Then replace the cams, you will be able to see how they go on when you take the door off. Before anything check to see that the door is aligned ok. You have some adjustmet on the top hinge. You also have some adjustment by raising and lowering the front wheels. You can also try lubing the cam that is on there now....Catriver.
